Publisher's Summary

Since returning from the peninsular wars, Michael Waterstone has learned to live within restricted boundaries and taught himself not to yearn for what he can never have. Fortunately for him, ex-courtesan Angelique Delisle is no respecter of boundaries of any kind, and offers him a provocative Christmas wager that might change his life forever.

unfulfilled potential

Offensively short story for two deserving characters! Actually more of a snapshot than a story even. so disappointed as it had such promise and these two deserve more than a quick aside of a novella 😥

Why so short???

This had so much potential. The structure of an excellent story was set... Why was this a novella??? It left me incredibly disappointed, this could have been better then both of the first 2 in this series. I just really don’t get it. Narration was excellent.

giving a sensual aspect to a disabling condition.

I found this title to hit very close to home. my husband is paraplegic. his condition has changed the way we interact sexualy but it has in no way diminished the pleasure we find in each other. only in different ways. I loved when Michael says he never thought he would be so excited with a kiss. that is what we find Soo erotic. The nuances of love making. I am so very glad for others to be exposed to that very erotic aspect in a mainstream romance novel.

Huh? But who was poisonings her and why?

It should be noted this is just a novella or a short story. It starts with our heroine thinking that someone is poisoning her because her dog threw up. Our Heroine just drops this sexy wager on our Hero. The book does tells us that our Hero can still get it up, but it never resolves the mystery. Was our Heroine being poisoned? Was it the Cook? and Why?

I think book was a cop out to have some additional story written for our Hero, because well, he kind of deserves a story. This could have been so much more! Unless you are reading the whole series or just need a quick story about some sex, I wouldn't bother with this one.

Only 6 chapters????

Sorry the Author just got lazy here, and rushed through a story to get it done. Her first 2 audio books were around 10 hours each. This one was only 1 hour! The last book in the series is only 6 hours. She could have combined the last 2 books and it still would have been only 2/3 of a full book. Very disapointing!

I was so excited....

I was so excited and looking forward this book. Then I only saw 4 chapters and only 3 of them devoted to Michael's story. I was so disappointed. This book could have been Extraordinary with the depths and struggles of a Wounded soldier and a courtesan both struggling with failures and short comings finding love unexpectedly. Loving Michael deserves at least a 4hr story not 45mins.

Too short is right

I was impressed and excited that someone had finally tackled a disabled war hero and his love story. Really could/should have been a full book and 2 hours. I have really liked the series and a new to me author.

Too short

Could have been better with more character development and story plus more of previous characters
